Two and three sport athletes at Indianola High School are not uncommon. However, competing at a high level in multiple sports is more challenging. For 2007 graduate Katie Schenfeld, the challenges of hitting a golf ball accurately and swimming at a fast pace were two skills she performed very well.
As an accomplished golfer, her achievements were many. Her high school resume includes: 4 years all-conference and academic all-conference; 2 time conference MVP; 3 years all-district; 6th and 14th place finishes at the state tournament two separate years. During Katie’s IHS swimming career, she was a 4 year all-conference performer both in the pool and in the classroom. Additionally, she was all-district 4 years and qualified for the state swim meet in 2005.
After graduating from IHS, Katie enrolled at Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota where her golf game became outstanding. After being named freshmen of the year in the MIAC Conference, Katie forged a resume which included: 13 times conference player of the week; 12 tournament titles; 4 times All-Conference and Academic All-Conference; 2 time conference champion; 2 time conference player of the year; 3 time All-American and Academic AllAmerican.
Katie would like to recognize IHS staff members Rita Bunting, Scott Post, Kurt Lickiss and Jim Blythe as important influences during high school. Also, Gustavus Aldolphus golf coach Scott Moe was a key influence in her success at the collegiate level.
Katie’s parents are Mike and Terry Schenfeld. She currently lives in Marshall, Minnesota where she is a personal banker with US Bank. Katie and fiancé Warren Schroden are planning a June wedding.
